I bought too many strawberries at the farmer's market, now what?


Strawberry season in the Pacific Northwest is so short and the berries so good. We gorge ourselves on them when they're in season.  A few weekends ago while at the Beaverton Farmers Market  the berries looked so good that I bought too many.  There was no way I could eat them all before they went bad.  Now what? 


My friends were having  a BBQ so I made a pie with some of the berries.  Willow Bird Baking had a Strawberry Sour Cream Pie that sounded good and it would help me use up some of my berries before they went bad.  The pie turned out great and everyone at the BBQ really enjoyed it.

I still had too many berries though. I couldn't help myself at the market. The berries looked so good and smelled like summer. It always brings back memories of berry picking with my grandma and cousin when we were little.  I flipped through my recipe binder and came across  Strawberry Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins

These were a tasty breakfast muffin.

And if you STILL have berries you need to use, make yourself a daiquiri and add some fresh berries.

What will you make with your summer berries?
